Sample Funeral Program Outer Cover

This one page Bifold (Singe Fold) funeral Program booklet features a color background image of a green garden scene.  This funeral program format has a program title of "Honoring Her Life" and features a cover photo.  The full name and service details are included on the front.  The birth and death dates are also featured ans well as the service information. The back cover contains a poem and an acknowledgement or heartfelt thank you note from the family. 

This outer cover is very standard.  You could choose to change the one page funeral program title or  caption to something more descriptive about your funeral, memorial service or necrological service program, such as "Celebration of Life, or Homegoing Service. You could display the cover photo differently, such as in an oval or a picture frame clipart.  Also, there are many different memorial poems, scriptures and quotes that you can use in place of the one shown here.  The bifold funeral program is the most common funeral program layout, and is very easy to print and assemble.  Simply print the funeral program double-sided and fold down the center
